Donald Trump's nomination acceptance speech got a standing ovation from delegates at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Delegates seem to have greater enthusiasm about his chances of beating Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in November's election. (SOUNDBITE)(English) LENAR WHITNEY, DELEGATE FROM LOUISIANA, SAYING: "The whole speech was tremendous: job economics, prosperity, safety, love of family and country, and commitment to us." (SOUNDBITE)(English) AARON FREEMAN, DELEGATE FROM INDIANA, SAYING: "I think he laid out a compelling story for the last eight years and the huge missed opportunity that this country has had and that we've got to set ourselves on a different direction or this country cannot survive." (SOUNDBITE)(English) REVEREND JAMES HENDERSON, DELEGATE FROM ALABAMA AND CHARISMATIC EPISCOPAL MINISTER, SAYING: "There was an underlying concern for people and for me as a minister that's an acid test - does he love people, does he love our country? And it's clear that he does." Not far from the convention venue a group of workers in the medical industry appeared to disagree. There've been protests throughout the four-day convention but only 23 arrests, a far cry from the 1, 000 a day authorities had anticipated.
